Lawmakers hear testimony during House hearing on gun violence

Hello, OnPolitics readers.

The day began with an arrest early this morning near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home. An armed suspect who made threats against the associate justice was arrested about 1:50 am, and taken to a local police district in Montgomery County, Maryland, a court spokesman and a local police official told USA TODAY.

Montgomery County police arrived at the scene after the suspect, identified in court records as Nicholas John Roske, called 911 around 1:42 am, allegedly claiming to be armed, suicidal and that he came to “kill” a Supreme Court justice.

Roske had traveled to the Washington area from California. Authorities later recovered a Glock pistol, a tactical knife, pepper spray, zip ties, hammer and crow bar from a pack he was carrying.
